Posted Jul 11, 2017

    My loves…

I am looking for a few creative souls to make up the first ever~~ Shawn Petite Creative Team!

What I’m looking for

Someone who has a passion for creating, loves to encourage and uplift and believes that we are better together.  A creative soul that finds the stories behind the art and shares it with love and compassion. A mixed media artist (and that can mean alot of things) that is dependable and can commit to a schedule and deadline. Even if your new to the mixed media world or are just starting out, I want to see your talent, your passion, your story (everybody was a beginner once).   Mixed media: assemblage, art journaling, tag/card making, large format art or small format art, any thing that you can use my line of stencils in.

What you’re responsible for

You would be responsible for 8 or 9 videos (you must be able to create well lit video) for me to post on my website for the 2017/2018 year of Sept thru Aug, using my line of stencils and collage paks. Contents to include several clear, well lit photos of the project created, products used besides the stencils and/or collage pak (you may use any and all materials) Thoughts behind the design, the story or meaning. You will be responsible to post your project to your social media channels, (facebook, instagram, pinterest)

What’s in it for you

You will receive 12 stencils upon approval of the creative team, then additional stencils throughout the year and any new release stencils. Access to any and all online collage paks. Access to resource library. I will also be available to help with questions with video set up, lighting, best photo/video editing options and apps and will give you access to my extensive music library for creating meaningful videos. Promotion and exposure to my over 15,000 followers.

Hello there! I’m Shawn Petite

I’ve been teaching and creating for well over 25 years. About 15 years ago I found my art soul mate in mixed media, and it changed my life! I love the story that can be told by combining paint, texture, ink, paper and—really anything that you can imagine.

But what I’m truly passionate about is being your guide, walking with you step by step and helping you become your own hero in your creative journey.

Along my path, I’ve learned that the creating art also creates a healing space. Life can be messy and complicated and painful, but something about a paint brush can help heal your soul. I believe—no, I know—you are worthy of love, and I want to teach you to know that about yourself. Join me on this journey of art and inspiration!

    I would love to pitch my tent of hope here….

    • Shawn

      That made me smile!

  5. Cynthia Rolf

    Hello Shawn, this is a great opportunity! Can you tell me a time frame that this process runs, weeks/months, that the artist would need to commit to? Also is it required to have a website?

    • shawn

      It is a year long commitment creating a post and video every other month, so 6 times for the year and then more if you want. You don’t need a website, but you do need to be able to create a video for you tube.
      Hope this answers your questions… Thanks!
